For my daughter’s dining room redo we used mix of reproduction and vintage furnishings.
Over the past year, our youngest daughter has enjoyed bringing a mid-90’s house into this century, including a dining room redo. Entering her home, the foyer opens into the dining room (to the right) and living room (straight ahead). The living area was featured a few weeks ago when I showed the steps taken to achieve an Informal Picture Wall.
The dining room redo was actually the first completed space. The brass light fixture was replaced with a modern-shade chandelier, selected to compliment the shape of the glass top table from her previous town home. The heathered chenille jute rug was originally in the living area, with the plan to move here when a replacement was found. The clean-lined sideboard and Asian-style console (next to the front door) came from AtHome Furnishings, a locally owned home store, along with the large horse canvas. Reproduction accessories include an iron scale, glass jug lamp and mercury glass items placed on a red metal serving tray.
One of my favorite finds was this vintage metal humidifier table. Its shapely legs are wooden, but the rest is gorgeous pierced metal. I was lucky enough to find a kitchen table that had a similar finish too. The top lifts open and water was poured into the holding tank. You can see the the larger fan’s shadow at the bottom. A second, smaller fan was located near heating coils. The first artwork purchased years ago by DD2 was the abstract tree. It’s the perfect final touch to the room. Lola, one of her cats, seems to think so too.
